Enrollment for CSCW 2013 student volunteers is now open! Go to to submit your application. The deadline
for registering is November 2.

Student volunteers are essential to the success of the CSCW conference. In
return for help at the conference, student volunteers receive a number of
benefits including:

* Free conference registration.
* A fabulous t-shirt sure to be the envy of all conference goers
* A complimentary Conference Reception ticket
* Even more awesome SV benefits are still being planned and discussed, so
stayed tune!

While the volunteer duties are not always glamorous, everyone in the CSCW
community recognizes the importance of student volunteers for running a
successful conference. Volunteering provides a unique opportunity to
interact closely with CSCW authors, attendees, and other student
volunteers. Volunteering provides a structured, cordial environment for
students in various stages of their research career to become part of the
CSCW community. Students often report that the networks and communities
they build from these meetings are the greatest benefit of being a
volunteer. Indeed, it is not uncommon for future collaborations,
internships/jobs, and friendships to be made through the SV
experience. Many of the CSCW scholars whose work you read and cite were
student volunteers themselves way back in the dark ages before iPhones,
Facebook, in-flight WiFi, and other modern amenities we now take for


Volunteers must be undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D. students during the
2012-2013 academic year. Students of all backgrounds, regardless of
discipline, are encouraged to apply. You do not need to have a paper
accepted to participate, but you will be responsible for funding your
travel to and from the conference. No previous student volunteer experience
is required, but we are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people.
Volunteers must commit to 20 volunteer hours of work at the conference
during February 23-27, 2013.

Please note that enrollment in the "CHISV" system does not mean that you
have been selected -- we will run a lottery after November 2 to select
volunteers and notify individuals.

Get those applications in!
